Book Release: Synchronicity by Tureeda Mikell

February 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PST

Free

Join us as we celebrate the long-awaited and much-anticipated release of Tureeda Mikell‘s first full-length collection of poetry, Synchronicity: The Oracle of Sun Medicine. Location to be announced soon.

Preorders help small presses gauge print runs, so grab your copy before the event! www.nomadicpress.org/store/synchronicity

Synchronicity: The Oracle of Sun Medicine is a poetic-prose journey into the revelation of sun medicine that shows up like a rhyme in time to forewarn and sign the body and the mind. Filled with questions, answers, wordplay, interspecies connection, religious, scientific, and political satire, and prose about the Black Panthers, Synchronicity: The Oracle of Sun Medicine connects readers with the universal ear that takes them on a healing journey into the mysterious interwoven nature of humans, birds, stars, and those from beyond.

James Cagney, author of Black Steel Magnolias in the Hour of Chaos Theory, winner of the 2019 Josephine Miles PEN Oakland award says: “Be careful casual reader—cold hard truths lie within. These are not poems—they are corrective sermons written to turn you around to look squarely in the face of logic and reason. Synchronicity: The Oracle of Sun Medicine is a double-barreled book blasting holes clean through your assumptions and understanding of nature, spirit, history, and race. It aims to disassemble language down to its barest elements to help readers rebuild common sense from scratch. A veteran teacher and master storyteller, Tureeda Mikell is a lyrical wonder digging deep into the words and symbols we too often take for granted. There’s a reason events rhyme and repeat, there’s a grander purpose behind those synchronistic events and occurrences linking like a chain around you. The answers you need are lit and laid open at your feet. The journey is yours to take.”

Additional readers and the musician will be announced soon. Gnosh and drinks will be provided.

Donations will be collected throughout the evening, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds (NOTAFLOF).

Hope to see you there!
